    Heard a different 'pitch' in vacuum notic, then seconds later smelled an electrical/burning smell. Removed plate on bottom. Turned on vac again to see if brush moved. It did not, and smoke was coming from underneath.

Possible Solution: I had the same problem with my Powerforce vacuum. Please take note that I AM NOT a vacuum cleaner repairman, nor have I played one on TV. Try taking your beater bar out, and if it looks similar to the one pictured (Model#203-1195), get a cresent wrench. Look at the end of the beater bar one will be squared on the sides to hold the shaft inside statonary. Take the wrench and adjust it to fit the nub on that end. Grab the bar in the center, and turn the end with the wrench. Mine popped and came loose, then it could be turned by hand. A little light oil allowed to run into the end cap, turn it up and spin it a few times to let the oil work down the inside and put it back on. Mine works fine for now. Good Luck!!

    This solution also helped on the 6594 model powerforce. The brushroller is not the same, but after waiting a very long time without a response I tried this and it was a success.

    thanks normtoons!

It sounds like the brush assembly may have locked up. It can be replaced easily. You can order a new one at Bissell web site for $17.95. I experienced the same problem.

Here is the link for your part:

It is easy to replace on that particular model. Good Luck.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

I changed the belt on my bissell Cleanview revolution 3596 twice and both times the belt burned and starting to smoke. I'm not sure what to do now I have two broken belts what could I be doing wrong?


Sounds like the brush that the belt runs (or is supposed to run) is being kept from turning. If you can get the brush out to clean it and lubricate the ends that go into the holder clips, this should solve the problem. With the new belts burning and smoking it appears that the motor is running okay, but as I said, the brush that is supposed to be turning is frozen solid from debris or dirt. Need to free the brush and lubricate the brush holders with some WD40.

It turns on but the spinner underneath wont work now


Turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up..
Take out the scews in the plate that surounds the brush and take it off..
The belt should be firmly on the brush and the motor..
If the belt has come off the motor - pull out the side of the brush that the belt connects to.. Put the belt back on the motor post and the brush.. It might be a tad tough going back in because the belt should have a little tension..
Once the belt is on and brush in place - put plate back on..

Hope this helps ;o)

Bissell lift off, brush won't move smell burning rubber belt fine


OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck

Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber


The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll. If it is ok, try to turn the brush roll by hand, maybe the belt got pinched and won't move.

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.
